* Missing start
++ slight distortion (t01@2' & t03 @12')
// tape flip
/ / # cut twice after flip near end of drums-missing
some drums, starts when Jerry, Bob, Phil, and
Brent came on stage.
& After first verse-odd static from PA lasts about 12 seconds.
/ general note: Our practice at the time was to stop the recorder after
every time the band stopped. The theory was saving batteries and tape
space. We would learn to record the entire show by Spring 83!
Manor Downs Raceway, near Austin TX July 31 1982
Mic location: About 85 feet from stage near center
We caravaned down to Austin the next afternoon arriving a bit late but buying tickets at the gate- for $10! We set up about 30 feet in front of the board next to about 3 groups of guys with mic stands, one guy using a crutch with a single mic on it and another guy holding up a boombox on a crutch recording the show with it. Eric lost his wallet, skip said he saw people having sex in the bushes, Olvy got mad at a dude yelling underneath HIS own mics (one pointed toward the sky the other at the stage!). The recording tells me we had a good time and came out with a relatively decent tape. The complete story of our summer tour can be read in the text file.
